Agree with GENERAL EYES on this...
I also 'hear voices', see things, feel things etc etc all day every day.
My people (NZ Maori) just have a different perspective and understanding of that...in a nutshell we deem it far more a cultural/spiritual experience
rather than a psychiatric one.
My experiences would certainly - if you were to view them purely with a medical-modeled DSM-IV influenced set of eyes - be labelled with some form of
Psychosis/Schizoid disorder...heh, I just label it 'life'...
The kicker is I'm also a trained/qualified/highly experienced mental health worker, have been for the last two decades, and am currently Service
Manager of one of the largest mental health services of its type in my country...
Its never the *label* that limits us...rather its how we - and others - take onboard and overload us/ourselves with them.
